Summary:

Nearly all of the Civil War's greatest soldiers-Grant, Lee, Sherman, Davis, and Jackson-were forged in the heat of the Mexican War. This is their story.

The Mexican War has faded from our national memory, but it was a struggle of enormous significance. It was the first U.S. war waged on foreign soil, and it nearly doubled the size of our nation. At this fascinating juncture of American history, a group of young men came together to fight as friends, only years later to fight as enemies. Full of dramatic battles, daring rescues, secret missions, soaring triumphs, and tragic losses, The Training Ground is history at its finest.

"[A] fast-paced, colloquially written account....Dugard's spirited narrative animates a group of men whose force of character, professional skill, and ability to think outside conventional limits revitalized the sclerotic army."-Publishers Weekly

Genres:

  • Ted Davis

    Excellent book. Thoroughly researched, well-written and very enlightening. It has a very good narrator. I echo the comment of one other review regarding more information about Pickett and Longstreet; nonetheless, this is well worth the time and money.

  • Leslie Mauldin

    Just Right! This book is long enough to be worth the purchase but not too long & minutia filled. Would have liked to of learned more about the minor Generals such as Pickett & Longstreet. Since I am not a Civil War Buff, I do not remember which Generals were USA or CSA.
